Here We Come, Florida! Shipt Expands to Tampa Bay, South Florida and Orlando
Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work bringing grocery delivery into cities across the South. After launching our app in the heart of Dixie, we learned how to honky tonk in Nashville, roped some cattle in Dallas and now we’re headed to the beach to offer on-demand grocery delivery to our friends in Florida.
What began as a start-up in Birmingham, Alabama, is now becoming a nationwide phenomenon. In fact, just this week Forbes said that the “grocery home delivery model is within our grasp.” We couldn’t agree more, which is why we are so excited to announce that our service is now available in Tampa and Miami! Also, we’ll be launching on-demand grocery delivery in Orlando in early September.
Recently, our fearless leader Bill Smith spoke with The Birmingham News to provide some insights on our expansion to the Sunshine State. If you have a minute, check out the full article by clicking here.
So far, the response to Shipt’s on-demand grocery delivery app has been overwhelming in every market. From the Tampa Bay Times and the Miami Herald to our friends and customers on Facebook, we’ve been amazed by the stories and reviews that have been shared over the past few weeks.
When we started Shipt, our goal was simple: deliver groceries to our customers and make their lives easier. As we read your comments, stories and emails, we are beginning to realize that we are achieving that goal.
In the coming weeks, we hope that we continue to hear from you as we expand our services across Florida. If you’re enjoying Shipt, let us know. If you think that we need to improve something, don’t hold back. We are customer-driven, and we want to ensure that you are having an amazing experience every time you use our app. Also, keep in mind that you can always reach our responsive customer service representatives by using our chat feature or even emailing them directly.
Groceries are going to be a part of our lives whether we like it or not – why not eliminate painful trips to the store and put your smart phone (and our Shoppers) to work with Shipt.
